The Overall Winner: Jim Reed for 'Making a Difference'

Play Video

A beautifully shot film to highlight the plight of big game birds, and particularly the vulture.

 Shot at a conservation park in Andover as a family day out, Jim had originally shown this 50 frames per second film last year but club projection problems spoiled the occasion and prompted a committee investigation for a solution.

Jim said, ‘Following the projection problems I also decided to re-edit the video, write a new script, add my own voice-over, and cut the length by half, all of which I think made it much more focused.’

‘I was delighted that it won so many awards tonight!’

Jim was Awarded:

The Jackson Trophy for Overall Winner
The Moorey Award for Best Documentary
The Dick Hibberd Trophy for Best Camerawork
The Pat Doherty Award for the Best Use of Sound

Colin Lewis 'Paris in Five Minutes'
The Sir Paul Holden Trophy for Best Commentary

Jim Reed - 'OSOM'
Penny Johnson Trophy for Best Editing

A fictitious charity OSOM – Out of Sight Out of Mind – describes the downfall of Nigel’s ‘recycling’ business after China banned the import of product from the UK because of contamination. (Video not available)

Peter Stratford - 'Homage to a Comedy Classic'

A parody of the classic Peter Sellers comedy sketch “Balham – Gateway to the South” re-imagined as “Farnham – Gateway to the South”!

Dave Skertchly - Auxtetic Performancey
Highly Commended

Fim describes a potential new carbon fibre technology which has interested Boeing and could be an enable for the next generation of electric carbon fibre aircraft.

Dave Skertchly - 'Return to Sorrento'

If this narrow gauge railway was located in North Wales it would be operated by bands of attentive volunteers who would maintain it to the highest standard, but as the narrator says “this is Italy”.
